Undergraduate Advising & Registration
Advance registration for upcoming semesters occurs in November for the Spring, Summer I and Summer II semester; and in April for the Fall semester. All chemical engineering students will need to be advised by Kristina
Thompson, our undergraduate staff advisor, before they will be allowed to register. The advisor office is in Chemical Engineering
Building Room 211, and advising hours are 9:00 a.m. − 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. − 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
She will check your advising sheets and remove
your registration holds. She will schedule advising appointments beginning in October for spring and summer registration and beginning in March for fall registration.

30−minute appointments are available on request. Please bring your completed advising sheets with you to the appointment.
Academic advising is mandatory every semester prior to registration in order to have your advising hold removed. Prior to meeting with their academic advisor, every undergraduate student must fill out one of the two following advising sheets:
Any advising issues which require faculty input must be referred to Dr. Mark W. Vaughn, the undergraduate faculty advisor. If you have questions about a particular focus or area of your chemical engineering degree, contact the appropriate faculty or staff member from the following list:
Dr. Carla Lacerda
- Polymers & Materials:
Dr. Ronald C. Hedden
- Process Control:
Career counseling is mandatory for juniors and seniors in the fall semester prior to registering for their spring classes. Prior to meeting with their
academic advisor, every junior− and senior-level student must fill out the Chemical Engineering Career Counseling Sheet.
Juniors and seniors must select a member of the faculty to be their career counselor. The selection process is accomplished by seeing Mary Beth Abernathy in the departmental office, CHE 204. Students should then email their career counselor for an appointment. Take your completed career counseling form and a copy of your Curriculum Vitae (CV) or Résumé to your appointment. After your appointment, turn your completed and signed Career Counseling Sheet to the undergraduate advisor.
